Self-reliance is a vital key to living a healthy, productive life.  To be self-reliant one must master a basic set of skills, more or less making them a jack of all trades.  Contrary to what you may have learned in school, a jack of all trades is far more equipped to deal with life than a specialized master of only one.

1.   Build a Fire   – Fire produces heat and light, two basic necessities for living.  At some point in your life this knowledge may be vital.

2.   Operate a Computer   – Fundamental computer knowledge is essential these days.  Please, help those in need.

3.  Use Google Effectively   – Google knows everything.  If you’re having trouble finding something with Google, it’s you that needs help.

4.  Perform CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver   – Someday it may be your wife, husband, son or daughter that needs help.

5.  Drive a Manual Transmission Vehicle   – There will come a time when you’ll be stuck without this knowledge.

6.  Do Basic Cooking   – If you can’t cook your own steak and eggs, you probably aren’t going to make it.

7.  Tell a Story that Captivates People’s Attention   – If you can’t captivate their attention, you should probably just save your breath.

9.  Deliver Bad News   – Somebody has got to do it.  Unfortunately, someday that person will be you.

11.  Handle a Job Interview   – I promise, sweating yourself into a nervous panic won’t land you the job.

12.  Manage Time   – Not doing so is called wasting time, which is okay sometimes, but not all the time.

14.  Remember Names   – Do you like when someone tries to get your attention by screaming “hey you”?

16.  Travel Light   – Bring only the necessities.  It’s the cheaper, easier, smarter thing to do.

18.  Give Driving Directions   – Nobody likes driving around in circles.  Get this one right the first time.

19.  Perform Basic First Aid   – You don’t have to be a doctor, or genius, to properly dress a wound.

20.  Swim   – 71% of the Earth’s surface is covered by water.  Learning to swim might be a good idea.

21.  Parallel Park   – Parallel parking is a requirement on most standard driver’s license driving tests, yet so many people have no clue how to do it.  How could this be?

23.  Select Good Produce   – Rotten fruits and vegetables can be an evil tease and an awful surprise.

24.  Handle a Hammer, Axe or Handsaw   – Carpenters are not the only ones who need tools.  Everyone should have a basic understanding of basic hand tools.

26.  Speak at Least Two Common Languages   – Only about 25% of the world’s population speaks English.  It would be nice if you could communicate with at least some of the remaining 75%.

27.  Do Push-Ups and Sit-Ups Properly   – Improper push-ups and sit-ups do nothing but hurt your body and waste your time.

28.  Give a Compliment   – It’s one of the greatest gifts you can give someone, and it’s free.

30.  Listen Carefully to Others   – The more you listen and the less you talk, the more you will learn and the less you will miss.

31.  Recite Basic Geography   – If you don’t know where anything is outside of your own little bubble, most people will assume (and they are probably correct) that you don’t know too much at all.

32.  Paint a Room   – The true cost of painting is 90% labor.  For simple painting jobs it makes no sense to pay someone 9 times what it would cost you to do it yourself.

33.  Make a Short, Informative Public Speech   – At the next company meeting if your boss asks you to explain what you’ve been working on over the last month, a short, clear, informative response is surely your best bet.  “Duhhh…” will not cut it.

35.  Flirt Without Looking Ridiculous   – There is a fine line between successful flirting and utter disaster.  If you try too hard, you lose.  If you don’t try hard enough, you lose.

36. Take Useful Notes   – Because useless notes are useless, and not taking notes is a recipe for failure.

39.  Navigate with a Map and Compass   – What happens when the GPS craps out and you’re in the middle of nowhere?

41.  Hook Up a Basic Home Theater System   – This isn’t rocket science.  Paying someone to do this shows sheer laziness.

43.  Protect Personal Identity Information   – Personal identity theft is not fun unless you are the thief.  Don’t be careless.

44.  Implement Basic Computer Security Best Practices   – You don’t have to be a computer science major to understand the fundamentals of creating complex passwords and using firewalls.  Doing so will surely save you a lot of grief someday.

46.  End a Date Politely Without Making Promises   – There is no excuse for making promises you do not intend to keep.  There is also no reason why you should have to make a decision on the spot about someone you hardly know.
